What is the special income tax certificate? Whom can I contact about a tax refund? 

We are obliged to withhold income tax when we pay you money. This lump sum is paid to the tax office in Wiesbaden. If you send us an application for pay in lieu of leave or compensation, we deduct your income tax from the amount. 

We send you a special income tax certificate once a year, stating how much income tax we paid to the tax office.

Would you like to know whether you are eligible for a refund? 

We are not responsible for tax refunds.

You should submit an application for a refund to your employer’s responsible tax office. Ask your previous employer from the calendar year in which you were entitled to take leave. 

Send all the necessary documents and information by post to the responsible tax office. 

Does your employer not have to pay tax in Germany? In that case, please contact the tax office responsible for your home country.
